Ladies Lunch :: Dessert, Panna Cotta with Berries

This lovely dessert was the perfect sweetness at the end of our Ladies Lunch. This takes a bit of time to set, but you can make these ahead of time , keep them refrigerated and top with the macerated berries before serving. We served them in these vintage dessert glasses, but of course any glass or ramekin will do. enjoy : )
